Dan Heilman started his career as an assistant to Roy Crane on 'Buz Sawyer' and Ken Ernst on 'Mary Worth'. In 1952 Heilman started a series on his own. The 'Judge Parker' series was written by the psychiatrist Nicholas P. Dallis, who wrote his comics under the name Paul Nichols, who brought social themes into the comic. Heilman mostly drew 'Judge Parker' in a photo-realistic style, but sometimes lapsed into a somewhat more cartoon-like rendition. He drew the comic until 1965, when he died at the age of 41. 'Judge Parker' was continued by Harold LeDoux.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over
12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
